February – April: Preferences allocation

Your preferences are combined with applications from out of the county and are ordered according to the admissions rules of each school.

When we are making decisions, we don’t take into account the order that you have put the schools in on your application; we will just list all children according to the admission rules for each school.

If we can offer your child more than one school, we will always offer your child a place at the school you have put higher on your application.

If you applied online we will email you after 11am to tell you which school place you have been offered.

You can log in from 5pm to view your offer. If you need to reset your password you must use the email address you registered with.

You must confirm that you accept the school place you have been offered.

Admissions Policy 2020

The new school year starts and children attend their new school.


If you have applied for a school place for your child and the admission authority has refused the school place, you have a right of appeal for the school place to an Independent Appeal Panel (IAP).

Most appeals for Buckinghamshire Schools are administered by the Education Appeals Team at Buckinghamshire County Council. If you have any queries about admission appeals, please read the Parents’ Guide below which contains important information and advice.

Parents’ Guide

The Education Appeals Team is independent from the Admissions and Transport Team at the Council.  If you have queries relating to: allocations of school places, Waiting Lists, Grammar School Transfer Tests and Selection Reviews, these should be made to the Admissions and Transport Team.

We have now set our term dates for 2020/21. Children finish for the Summer on 21st July and come back to school on Thursday 3rd September 2020.
